INTRODUCTION TO TRANSPARENCY IN GOVERNMENT

INTRODUCTION TO TRANSPARENCY IN GOVERNMENT

‘Open Government in the most basic sense is the notion that the people have the right to access the documents and proceedings of government’.  Executive departments and agencies should harness new technologies to put information about their operations and decisions online and readily available to the public.

It is a term used as an alternative formulation to ‘freedom of information’ or ‘access to information’. Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing. In a wider sense it is synonymous with transparency. But it is an even more comprehensive concept than both. Transparency ensures that enough information is provided and that it is provided in easily understandable forms
and media.

Transparency is the core component of open government, freedom of information being a means to secure transparency and greater openness in the affairs of government.                      INTRODUCTION TO TRANSPARENCY IN GOVERNMENT

  • Open government means the transparency of government actions, the accessibility of government services and information and the responsiveness of government to new ideas, demands and needs.
  • Open government is one where the business of government and administration is thrown open to all, at all levels, so as to ensure effective public participation, scrutiny and oversight.
  • Transparency implies openness of both organisations and individuals constituting it and requires openness of information, processes, policy, decisions, actions and outcome.
  • Process transparency covers both internal business and supporting human resource, financial, and administrative processes; and external service delivery and regulation.                INTRODUCTION TO TRANSPARENCY IN GOVERNMENT
